A Family Feud Over a $9000 Crib: Who's in the Right? 🤷‍♀️

In a whirlwind of family drama, a woman finds herself at odds with her parents and sister over an exorbitantly priced baby shower gift. The golden child of the family, the sister, had her heart set on a $9000 crib for her soon-to-be-born daughter. But when our leading lady was asked to foot half the bill, she stood her ground, causing a ripple effect that led to a family-wide boycott of the baby shower. Now, she's been labeled as selfish, and the blame for 'ruining' the shower is being squarely placed on her shoulders. Let's see what the internet has to say about this high-stakes family conflict... 💔💸
